This weekend I'd like to do it but can anyone suggest a definitive hosting solution (with relative details) ? Thanks

Does this still work? I have tried copying the things from the first post. the studio flags show, the rated flags does not show, it just says rated PG in text.

And when i press left, it just % liked it, and there is no more info?

Im just using the default scraper

weird thing is its working fine in fuse-neue and estuary mod with exact same files, but arthic zephyr the information is all blank.

Ah i see Knight77 have made som adjustments, i will try that, hopefully the flags will be updated soon, github is a great solution Smile

Just tested Knight77 version, everything is fine, expect it doesnt get any data from like box office, revenue, % liked it etc, its all empty, do i need to use another scraper?

No, there were some recent changes in the omdb api that skinhelper addon gets the data from (this is what supplies the rottentomatoes data to the skin). Marcelveldt (skinhelper maintainer) is working on resolving it

Basically, there are some differences now in whether data is retrieved from omdb api via JSON or XML. In the past skin helper used JSON, but since rottentomatoes info has been restored in omdb, JSON is only returning ratings and nothing else, but XML is providing everything. So marcelveldt is checking with the omdb maintainer that this is not a bug before he goes and changes his code to the XML retrieval method.
